So here we are once more with some fresh new community features ready to be unleashed to the public. Basically, a WordPress plugin called BuddyPress has given us the power to turn our site into a mini-Facebook of sorts. In other words, you can interact with other members via posting on their own profile walls, PMing them, and even creating your own forums! The new dashboard on top says it all. Just highlight “my account” and experiment away. “Groups” is where the forums are found. I currently have a testing post up for experimentation purposes.
Sadly, we had to change our theme because it’s not compatible with BuddyPress. This new one is pretty sleek though. We’re still ironing out some of the features, including adding in a new banner. That one is from our old site and it’s just a placeholder.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy our new content. Expect more stuff to be added soon. If you have any questions, just ask. We’re in the process of figuring out BuddyPress too, but we may help each other in the long run.
BTW, what are we celebrating, you ask? Well…you’ll have to find out tomorrow.
